Just concluded our 5 days 4 nights safari trip with Viva Safaris at Tremisana Lodge and Marc's Treehouse Lodge, out of which we spent 3 nights at Marc's Treehouse. The entire experience was just amazing. Our treehouse at Marc's had an ensuite but we were placed at the extreme end of camp so it was a real authentic experience. The staff do a really good job keeping the rooms clean but bugs and rodents do get in from time to time. It's not a pest problem - it's a treehouse to start with! I must admit I am afraid of bugs but even I found the treehouse manageable.
The staff went out of their way to make sure that we're comfortable and the food was just delicious. We spent 2 full days out of 5 days speeding through Kruger Park on an open game viewing vehicle and managed to see every Big 5, even the leopard! The guides are all very knowledgeable and dedicated to their craft. Ashleigh injured her knuckle while with us on the sunset drive and still drove us around Kruger 2 days after. We spotted everything but the leopard on that trip. On the next day, Texan must have driven us through half the park to make sure we cover as much ground as possible to spot the elusive leopard. We finally spotted the beautiful animal lying on the grass at about 4pm. It was only later that we learned that we had spent 8 years working for Kruger Park before and knew every nook and cranny of that place!
All in all, our trip with Marc's Treehouse Lodge and Viva Safaris was great value for money and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic bush-living experience while still wanting to keep some basic creature comforts.
